Not all white tops are the same, like this super fun tequila top from Inside Out Everyday.
White tunic with cami included

Sizes



A sheer, textured white tunic over a simple cami makes an elegant statement with a dash of sass. Better yet, it’s aptly called the Tequila Tunic! Pair it with jeans for casual, a skirt for a party, or something in between for a day out with your girlfriends. Machine washable and great for travel, this summer top will get a lot of wear and enjoyment. Just $84 and nearly all sold out. Only size large remaining.

Sometimes, black is the way to go. The Easy Elegance of an all black profile will never steer you wrong.

As with all Inside Out Everyday tops, this also comes with plenty of room in the torso to disguise extra things we shan’t mention aloud. Available in one each size from Small to Extra Large. Like it?

New Jewelry – Favorite Artist

Our top-selling jeweler each and every month is Christophe Poly. After studying architecture in college, he fell in love with the small scale of jewelry sculpture.

Last Chance Opportunity

We had to give you a chance to take advantage of a last opportunity to get one of Testimony’s most awesome jackets – the Long Victorian Jacket.

New jewelry and favorite jackets go hand in hand like Testimony Los Angeles.
Testimony’s Long Victorian Jacket is now discontinued

This statement jacket not only looks good on every body type, it is also soft and comfortable to wear. Made of French Terry (cotton with spandex), the high quality fabric lasts for many years while keeping you looking your best. As artists always do, Testimony is moving on to new styles and leaving this best-seller behind. I have a few left, so if you’ve been waiting on this one, wait no more. Available in mineral wash black, as shown in this photo. Only medium is left at MaJe, but it’s quite possible one or two more are available with the maker. Need it? Let me know and I’ll find out for you.

Stay tuned as new things arrive weekly, full of fun spring items for personal adornament as well as gift giving. Be first to know by following us on Facebook!

Beautiful Garnet Jewelry for January Birthdays

Born in January? Then it’s time to treat yourself to some truly beautiful garnet jewelry to celebrate your birth month. Choose MaJe’s unique, artisan garnet jewelry to mark the occasion – jewelry as distinctive as you!

Beautiful Garnet Jewelry in Silver

Beautiful garnet jewelry like this unique necklace featuring five hand-faceted sparkly garnets by Bill Booze.
Classic Garnet Jewelry Fit For a Queen

Our top choice for beautiful garnet jewelry is by Bill Booze. A master faceter, Bill selects top grade stones that are still rough, and carves off each little ledge, each facet, to capture the most intense color and sparkle possible in each stone. After honing his skill for over 30 years, Bill’s stones are unrivaled in depth of color and perfection.

Bill usually focuses on a single stone in a pendant, or a pair in earrings. This five-stone necklace is a rare treat due to not only the perfectly matched stones, but also the classical elegant design that you might find on the queen in a period movie. Think of the jewelry in “Elizabeth” or “Titanic”, and you’ll be reminded of the feminine power of the jewelry of that time. Now you can own it yourself!

Beautiful garnet jewelry fits the January birthday girl.
Two pairs of intensely red garnet earrings

These photos show the intense shade of red in the hand-faceted beautiful garnet jewelry by Bill Booze. Whether you prefer a little dangle or a simple stud, we’ve got you covered with a stunning example of high quality garnet jewelry.  By the way, garnet is also the stone for one’s second wedding anniversary.

Beautiful garnet jewelry like this classic swing necklace from Ed Levin.

Ed Levin has been making modern heirloom jewelry in New York for over 60 years. This unusual necklace can be worn as shown, which is perfect for all your V-neck tops. But you also have scoop neck tops in your closet, in which case you can simply “swing” the necklace around so it forms a “U” that fits perfectly with your scoop neck tops!

Beautiful Garnet Jewelry in Gold

Beautiful garnet jewelry with gold-fill metal by Shari Both creates a regal effect.
Garnet with gold, by Shari Both

Maybe you’ve met Shari. She works the gallery every other Wednesday, and has been with us since the earliest of days. Have you ever noticed our lovely sunshine walls? Shari helped paint those before we even opened our doors! In addition to excellent painting skills, Shari has been a jewelry designer for even longer. Inspired by antique jewelry and the elegance of times past, Shari updates that mood with wire and gemstones to create gorgeous pieces like this one here which she brought just last Wednesday when she was working the floor.

You’ll see the beautiful deep red garnets dangling from the gold-fill four-petal flower she created herself out of wire, but what are the charming pink stones there too? Lovely pink tourmaline accents add a note of depth to this unusual and charming necklace that is now available at MaJe Gallery.

New Fall Arrivals at MaJe Gallery – Unique Jewelry, Skirts

New Fall Arrivals

 

A new fall arrival is this unique ammonite and amber pendant was made by Bonnie AuBuchon
Ammonite and Amber pendant by Lynnwood’s master metalsmith, Bonnie AuBuchon

Two ancient natural substances become beautiful contemporary mates in this one-of-a-kind pendant by Bonnie AuBuchon. Amber is fossilized tree resin, has been appreciated for its color and beauty since Neolithic times.  Ammonites are fossilized sea creatures, similar to a nautilus. A master metalsmith, Bonnie created a flowing frame in sterling silver to unite the separate elements together. This is just one of our new fall arrivals. It hangs from a black leather cord measuring 17″

New fall arrival - a brushed silver necklace and earring set by Christophe Poly

Also among our new fall arrivals is new jewelry by Montreal’s Christophe Poly. He studied architecture in college, then fell in love with the small scale of jewelry sculpture. One of the most popular jewelers at MaJe Gallery, this is one of the newest pieces in our new fall arrivals. Brushed silver and bronze with aqua cat’s eye stones, it sits on a 17″ double wire necklace with a magnetic clasp. (Update 10/12: Necklace now sold)

A new fall arrival: this necklace and earring set of bright silver with lavender cat's eye.
Another set by the popular Christophe Poly

Once familiar with the jewelry of Christophe Poly, it’s easy to recognize. This set is composed of bright, shiny silver, with one brushed silver circle on the right side. The lavender cat’s eye gives it a cool mood. Like above, this is also on the 17″ double wire with magnetic clasp.

New fall arrivals: more subdued skirts by Marcia Bloom
Fall skirts by Marcia Bloom

Also among our new fall arrivals are these fairly subdued skirts from our usually riotously colored skirts by California’s Marcia Bloom. As comfortable as always, these would all look great with your black boots this fall and winter.  One size fits 6 – 16. Don’t believe me? Stop by and see for yourself! (Update: These three are now sold out.)

New fall arrivals look great in this skirt, top and scarf
Outfit of the week for the first day of fall

Flummoxed about how to work with your Marcia Bloom skirt? Check out this one here with the lovely fall colors. We recommend pairing Marcia’s skirts with a solid-colored top. Pull the top and bottom together by selecting a second color from the skirt, and wear that as a scarf (or a necklace if you prefer). In this instance, we choose the medium brown from one of the stripes in the skirt and found a top in that color. Here is a Luxe Junkie 3/4 sleeve top in “mocha”. Next, we choose the brightest color in the skirt for the scarf – a rich terra cotta. This is a hand-painted silk scarf by our beloved Birgit Moening. (Update: this exact skirt has sold. However, we have one similar. It’s the same fabric in the body and hem. The waistband is a different fabric. Interested? I can send you a photo.)

Alternatively, wear a solid terra cotta top, and either a mocha or mustard scarf. By selecting higher contrasts, you make a very stylish statement with ease.

Add just a few finishing touches to turn pants and a T-shirt into a smashing outfit
A few simple touches can transform mere clothing into an outfit worthy of an Edmonds Girl

Every day, we choose one thing to put on our bottom half, and another to put on our top half. By taking another minute or two, you can make something very simple and transform it into something quite smashing.Check out the three photos above. On the far left, Manya is wearing her red Testimony pocket pants with an oversized white T-shirt. Yes, it’s fine.  But that’s just it. It’s only “fine.”In the middle photo, she added a fabulous big red necklace. That alone puts the bottom and top halves together by bringing up some of that red into the top piece. By adding the necklace with the same color as the bottom half, you’ve brought the two halves together.Now look at the photo on the right. Her red cap puts the finishing touch on this combination, turning it into an outfit that’s sure to elicit admiring glances all day long.Stay on top of what’s new at MaJe Gallery by following us on Facebook!
